Maile is growing and developing as a tween, and making her father nervous as ever along the way. Wayne Brady tells Wendy Williams that his daughter and her curves are making him one apprehensive parent.


“I took her out for Valentine’s Day,” says Brady. “The most disturbing thing about your child turning eleven, she’s eleven and she’s already five feet and half an inch [and] she has a booty!”

Wayne also shares his thoughts of Miley Cyrus in relation to his daughter, telling Wendy that he wouldn’t take his growing tween to see the Pop star in concert. “[It’s] not for my family,” shares the star.

Although he and ex-wife Mandie Taketa are no longer a couple, Wayne tells Wendy that they are still close friends. “It’s an understatement to say she’s my best friend in the world,” explains Brady. “I’ve got a woman who may not be my wife but I’ve got a woman at my back that says, ‘If you touch him, I will cut you.'”

As far as dating and remarrying are concerned, Wayne plans to take things slow and introduce his potential spouse to Maile when he feels that the time is right. “When I bring somebody into her life [I want to be sure] that it’s real, that it’s going to stick. That shows my respect for her,” says the star.

Maile is Wayne’s only child with Mandie Taketa.
